H-9 Spitfire Converted to Electric for Sale

This is a Hangar 9 Spitfire (ARF) with only 4 flights, perfect condition.

I converted this .60 size ARF to electric. This configuration and a 7-cell lipo pack produces over 1400 watts, enough power for unlimited vertical!
It will also fly scale like with a 6-cell lipo pack.

I can sale the airplane ready to fly for $700(you will need your own radio transm) or I can remove all the electronics, motor and servo and sale the kit only for $200

The airplane currently has the following equipment (all new, with only 4 flights on the spitfire)

Motor: Axi 4120/18
ESC: Jetti Opti 77
Servos: 4 Futaba Servos and 1 Hitech for the retracts
Receiver: Futaba 7 channel receiver
Flight Pack Battery: JR 5-cell 1650mAh
Upgraded Retracts: Greatplanes

I can deliver within 35 kms of Eglinton and Royal York in Toronto

Just wondering what prop you were using to pull only 53 amps for such a big plane?

And do you have any picks of your mounting orentation and system, also batty compartment etc.?

Hi Wene,

I spent considerable amount of time(and $) testing different setups for this airplane. It actually draws 54 amps at full power generating 1415 watts with a 14x7 prop and 57 amps with a 13x8.5 generating just over 1450wts. I get about 9-15minute flights depending on throttle management and how much power reserve I want to keep for landing.

Also one my goals was to keep it light as this bird ready to fly weights only 8.75 pounds with a Poliquest 7-cell(4+3) 4400mAhs; using this configuration I get 165 watts/pound.

For the batteries I had to build a small tray that goes at the front. Iím not using a BEC as I think is not safe for large airplanes so instead Iím using a 5-cell 1650mAhs flight pack.

I built my own motor mounts with aluminium tubing and two 4120 radial mounts; itís a very strong setup.

Iím not sure if I have time today but I will take some pictures and post them.
